International Conference on Primary Healthcare in Austria and Europe: Innovation for Resilient Health Systems

International Conference on Primary Healthcare in Austria and Europe: Innovation for Resilient Health Systems

09 September 2021

European health systems face numerous challenges today. As they start to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring they come back more resilient, sustainable and effective is imperative. Innovation holds the key to transforming health and care systems and to making them fit for the future. However, implementing innovative solutions from theory to practice can be extremely demanding. These challenges call for a joint vision to foster European collaboration and mutual learning for the successful transfer and implementation of innovations.

 

The Conference will explore the potential of innovation in governance and finance to strengthen health system resilience and in particular Primary Healthcare in Europe. The panelists will discuss ongoing initiatives and collaborative instruments which European partners can capitalise on to implement innovation. The Conference aims to provide a platform for mutual learning: from sharing successful experiences in the Austrian context of Primary Healthcare to reflecting together on the lessons learnt from COVID-19 across the European continent.
